In this time of mourning and grieving let us all be reminded and be comforted by these words, from 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18;

“But I do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who have fallen asleep, lest you sorrow as others who have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who sleep in Jesus. For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord will by no means precede those who are asleep. For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. Therefore comfort one another with these words.”

One of his favourite chapters, and prayers in the bible is this, from Psalms 91;

“He who dwells in the secret place of the Most HighShall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.” Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler And from the perilous pestilence. He shall cover you with His feathers,And under His wings you shall take refuge;His truth shall be your shield and buckler. You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, Nor of the arrow that flies by day, Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness,Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday. A thousand may fall at your side,And ten thousand at your right hand;But it shall not come near you. Only with your eyes shall you look,And see the reward of the wicked. Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge,Even the Most High, your dwelling place, No evil shall befall you, Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling; For He shall give His angels charge over you,To keep you in all your ways. In their hands they shall bear you up,Lest you dash your foot against a stone. You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra,The young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot. “Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him;I will set him on high, because he has known My name. He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble;I will deliver him and honor him.With long life I will satisfy him, And show him My salvation.”
